2022 Planner Guide

Your guide to choosing the right CEO of My Own Life® planner for 2022.

Whether you’re new to Ella Iconic or wondering which new CEO of My Own Life® 2022 planner to add to your collection, this guide will explain the range of options available and help you find the planner that best fits your needs.

Whichever planner you choose from our stunning 2022 collection, you’ll receive a planner unlike any other. Designed around our four exclusive planning pillars of business and career; home and family; health and fitness and personal planning, your CEO of My Own Life® planner is designed to be a complete life planner.

With options for daily and weekly layouts, time based or to-do list based planning, all of our planners help you set meaningful annual, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily goals. Throughout the year, you’ll stay on track with habit trackers, financial trackers, inspiring self-reflection projects and prompts to capture gratitude and precious memories.     

Step 1: Choose your planner type 

The CEO of My Own Life® 2022 Collection is available in three planner types: our classic book-bound planners; popular spiral-bound planners and our new personal organisers.  

 

2022 Classic Book Bound Planners

Elegant • Luxurious • Minimalistic 

Bound in luxurious premium vegan leather, our book-bound planners are available in both daily and weekly (week on two pages) layouts. Pages in these planners are A5 and use high quality 100gsm paper. 

You’re spoiled for choice with five premium vegan leather cover choices in both the daily and weekly book-bound planners. Take your pick from pastel Blush, grey Shadow (shown), elegant and dark Modern Blue, sophisticated Black with minimalist rose gold detailing or our Classic Black.

New for 2022, matching notebooks and in-house personalisation service where you can now monogramme your planner or notebook with up to ten characters in rose gold foil.

 

2022 Spiral Planners

Colourful • Lie Flat • Gift Box Included

2022 Daily & Weekly Life Planners • CEO of My Own Life® • Ella Iconic Stationery

If you love a colourful cover and then you will love our spiral editions.

With hardback covers and rose gold accents, our spiral planners are also available in both daily and now in weekly (week on two pages) layouts. With the spiral binding and hard cover making these planners slightly larger and heavier than the book-bound planners. There are three designs to choose from: Magical Forest (shown), Pink Peony and Polka Dot.  

 

Luxury Personal Organisers

Ultimate Luxury • Customisable • Timeless

2022 Daily & Weekly Life Planners • CEO of My Own Life® • Ella Iconic Stationery

The newest addition to the CEO of My Own Life® planner family, Ella Iconic personal organisers.

They are designed for you to build your own perfect layout using our mix & match CEO of My Own Life® planner inserts. Printed in the UK on thick 120gsm paper, Ella Iconic personal organiser inserts can stand up to gel pens, highlighters and stickers galore!

The first ever Ella Iconic personal organiser in matte black was such a hit in 2021 that we knew we had to bring it back in the 2022 collection. It’s joined by Sunrise, a gorgeous apricot shade to brighten your day. Both colour options feature a rose gold snap fastening on a soft cover with a pen loop, zipped compartment and document pockets concealed inside. 

Can’t decide? Tips for choosing your planner type

We all have different preferences when it comes to choosing the perfect planner. Here are some questions that might help you choose:

Do you need a planner light enough to carry with you all day?

Every CEO of MY Own Life® planner is light and portable enough to carry with you, but if you’re looking for the lightest option, our book-bound weekly planners are the lightest of the lot. Due to the ring binding, our spiral-bound planners and personal organisers are bigger than our book-bound planners, but each type offers full sized A5 pages. 

Do you like hardback or semi flexible covers?

Spiral planners are hardback, while our classics (book bound) planners are bound in premium vegan leather. If you like to fold pages over, then a spiral planner would be your best option.

Are you looking for flexibility or a long term commitment? 

Both our book-bound and spiral-bound planners come with a complete year of either daily or weekly planning pages to see you through 2022 in style. Exclusive new colours and designs are released each year, offering a fresh new look each January.

Ella Iconic personal organisers can accommodate your choice of planner inserts, allowing you to experiment with different planning layouts as your circumstances change. If you’d like to move seamlessly from one year to the next, then consider investing in a personal organiser.

 

Step 2: Choose your planning layout

Whatever your planning preference, our 2022 Collection has the planner to suit your planning style. Let's find out what works best for you.

 

You prefer to plan each day in great detail

• Choose 2022 Daily Planner: either spiral or book bound edition

2022 Daily & Weekly Life Planners • CEO of My Own Life® • Ella Iconic Stationery

 

Our daily planning pages combine a timetable and to-do list for the ultimate daily overview.

Each daily spread begins with space to record your mantra for the day as well as your top priorities. Down the left hand side of each page, a daily schedule runs in one-hour increments from 6am to 12 midnight. On the right hand side of the page, dedicated areas for each of the four exclusive planning pillars allow you to note important to-do list tasks and reminders. At the bottom of each daily page, you’ll be prompted to record something that you’re grateful for.  

 

You prefer to see your whole week at a glance

• Choose 2022 Weekly Planner: either spiral, book bound or personal organiser with inserts

2022 Daily & Weekly Life Planners • CEO of My Own Life® • Ella Iconic Stationery

Our weekly planning pages are ideal if you run an appointments-based business, have a lot of meetings or like to assign tasks to dedicated blocks of time. They can also help co-ordinate busy family schedules.

Each week is represented across a two page spread. On the left, you’ll find an at-a-glance calendar for the current month as well as space to note priorities for the week and memories and gratitude to cherish. Spread across the two A5 pages, each day of the week is represented by a 6am – 10pm schedule in 30 minute increments with a space at the top of each column to note a daily area of focus. Along the bottom of the weekly spread you’ll find space to mark down to-do lists and reminders in each of the four planning pillars.  

Can’t decide? Tips for choosing your planning layout

We all have different preferences when it comes to choosing the perfect planner. Here are some questions that might help you choose:

Do you prefer to plan with schedules and appointments, to-do lists, or a combination of both?

• If you work best according to strict timetables, e.g. client appointments, classes and lectures or family activities, or like to assign tasks to certain times, then a weekly layout will help you fit your busy week into one easy to read double page spread.

• If you prefer to work with lists and reminders and don’t enjoy a fixed schedule, the week on one page personal organiser inserts will help you make progress on your priorities.

• For longer to-do lists and an hourly schedule to accommodate occasional meetings and appointments, combine the best of both worlds with a daily layout. 

• If you’re not yet sure of your planning preference, or prefer to vary it based at different points throughout the year, mix and match a selection of inserts in the Ella Iconic personal organiser to create a completely customisable planner. 

How busy are you on weekends?

The only difference between the 2022 daily spiral and book bound planners is the weekends. 

In the daily book bound planners, Saturday and Sunday have a page each. In the spiral planners, the weekend days share a page. So it is all down to how busy you are at weekends. If you have a lot going on and need ample writing space, then a book bound planner will be a lot better suited to you than a spiral planner.

Do you need a planner light enough to carry with you all day?

Every CEO of MY Own Life® planner is light and portable enough to carry with you, but if you’re looking for the lightest option, 2022 weekly classic book bound planners contain fewer pages and therefore will weigh less. 

Do you use your planner to take notes in meetings, jot down new ideas, track stats or journal?

All CEO of My Own Life® 2022 planners contain lined and dot grid notes pages at key points throughout the planner, but if you are after extra notes pages here is an overview:

• 2022 Daily Editions: no notes pages at the back.

• 2022 Weekly Editions: spiral editions come with 20 notes pages at the back and book bound editions with 23. 

• If you’d like to use additional notes pages for journaling, attending meetings or taking notes, opt for a personal organiser and add lined or dot grid notes pages refills.

Ella Iconic Premium Vegan Leather Notebooks

• If you are a serious note taker, consider investing in a gorgeous premium vegan leather bound notebook which comes with a whopping 255 lined notes pages.
